A vehicle based on the Chevrolet Beat concept, which swept through auto shows around the globe and the Internet earlier this year, will go into global production, Chevrolet announced today at the 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show.

An online poll that attracted more than 1.8 million voters helped influence the decision to take the concept to production. The distinctly styled A-class car will be initially targeted to markets outside of U.S. and Canada, starting in mid-2009.

“The people have spoken. The vote count tripled all previous GM online consumer surveys, telling us the Beat resonated with customers all around the world,” said Ed Peper, Chevrolet general manager. “Chevrolet was overwhelmed by the positive reaction to each of the ‘triplets,’ but the Beat was the clear winner.”

Sweet!
I think it's the right move to produce it, it's a great fit for the young buyer target market.

The new Opel Agila I think could be a starting point, it somewhat resembles the Beat:

:D For some reason that first one reminds me of a grimlin.
Not the car grimlin, but grimlin like from the movie.

I think this thing is worse for actually trying to make it look good. Those headlight lenses are as long as an 11 year old is tall. That looks like a full size car that was compressed to look goofy for a comic strip.

It can be the "special" autobot in the next tranformers.

Maybe so but I'd be scared to drive that thing in the US with Excursions and Suburbans running around. Hell I'd be scared of a crown vic in that.

True, but Honda already has 45 different 4-cylinder rollerskates, so what's one more. :lol:

I think this is just what GM needs to steal some sales from Honda & Scion.
I agree, it will more than likely sell pretty decent. It just makes me shake my head when I remember that's what America's youth wants, it's just sad.
